six times spoke to fox news a year ago. with the defense department dealing with the attack he said via skype the public should make its own assessment. >> the government has treated this as an act of terrorism. i hope if people hear the words from hasan's own mouth that they understand this was an act of terrorism. >> reporter: in the only document bearing a date he writes i am compelled to renounce any oath of allegiances that require me to support/defendant any man made constitution like the constitution of the united states over the commandments mandated in islam. in another hand written document he states if i make any mistakes i ask for forgiveness in understanding. hasan declared american democracy is incomparable. even if it specifically goes against what all mighty god commands. hasan complains america's ban on cruel and unusual punishment promotes flogging of a forn cater or severing a hand of a thief. >> it is clearly an after the fact issue where he is trying to put the sort of personal jihad into a larger religious and sort of geopolitical context and justify what he is

undersecretary of defense and now serving as the fourth director of national intelligence, there's no one that has served our nation and continues to serve our nation during so many trying times that director clapper has done. from his first serving our nation as the united states marine, during his time as a young airman in vietnam, throughout all the difficult times our nation has faced over the past five decades of peace, war, and conflict, what many do not know is that in the mid- 1990's he served as an instructor teaching a course, knowing he would go on to shape this great institution. that is very true, amazing, little knowing that he would go on to shape this great institution that the community has become and to lead that tens of thousands of women and men who make up our tremendous workforce. director clapper was awarded an honorary doctorate by niu in 1992, and it was through his leadership that this institution became the national university. on behalf of all the men and women in the united states intelligence community, all of you that are here, i would like to thank you, and i wo

case is just a travesty. >> mid win, if you are the defense, what do you do to separate this son from this father? >> what i would do is focus on the son and build him up as a person, and get the jury to understand what kind of person this man is. he's a young person, and i think jury oftentimes feel several thinkic for a defendant who is really, really young. i found that tape to be shocking, saying he doesn't understand why people are so persistent that this is a murder. i think it's the best way to try this case. >> it was chilling to hear the father talk about that like that. joshua young is 17 years old right now. he was 15 when the murder was committed. his appearance, he does seem so incredibly young. that is what the jury will be looking at. a very young man, but how much of the father will they see in the trial? how much of that other image, heather, is likely to get into their heads? >> that's what the prosecution is going to have to do. plaintiffs a suppression hearing to keep out of the some of the statements of josh young. it would be interesting if he admitted to some pa

defense, how do you have enough funding? i'm willing to cut entire departments. my problem with some of the more liberal members of the republican party is, they're not willing to cut spending other places in order to preserve national defense. >> joining me now is robert george, editorial writer for new york post, josh barrel and tim carnie, senior political columnist for the washington examiner. visiting fellow at the enterprise institute. you're team paul in this one, i take it? what do you think -- why do you think this is a good fight for the republicans to have? i sense you do think it is. and why is paul the one that you're backing, that you feel speaks for the party the best. >> first let me say i do not accept rand paul's premise that eating bacon makes you gain weights, i think it's the carbs. in the foreign policy realm, what we need and in the national security realm, as far as nsa, spying and the great stuff that you and glenn were talking about earlier, what we need is a robust debate and there hasn't been that in the republican party for a long time. it's been close. in t

day. >> i was in the wrong place at the wrong time. the inmate had been assaulted and my defense to them was telling them i was in the area and i was just pushed out of the way as the inmate was trying to get away from the person that assault him. >> bullock was anxiously awaiting a hearing with the prison's administrative law judge to plead his case. in the meantime, he let us know that while ad seg meant losing his television, the location of his cell at least made it possible to keep up with current events. >> this cell right here in front of the police station, to me, is the best cell on this range due to the fact that you get a lot of movement. you see who is coming in and out and inmates, c.o.s, good scoops on who's dating who with the c.o.s, who got into it with who, whoever it may be. >> so do you know what happened between brad and jen? >> brad and jen? yeah. they're divorced. >> three days later, bullock was about to face his own life-altering event, his hearing on the assault charge. >> we're coming up to see the inmate bullock to see the committee today. he's being charg

prosecutor, who is now a defense attorney, told me the government has not convicted somebody of aiding the enemy since 1917. >> that was is essentially a case where somebody was disclosing information because they wanted americans to be killed. they wanted the enemy to have this information. and, in this case, i think the government just was not able to prove that pfc manning intentionally disclosed this to the enemy. >> shepard: manning supporters demonstrated outside othe courthouse today they see him as the whistle blower, a hero, not a criminal. so do lawyers who just called him naive with good intentions. manning admits he did give wikileaks more than 700,000 documents. prosecutors claim he knew al qaeda would see that information on that, prosecutors for the government lost completely. catherine herridge is on fox top story in the courthouse in fort mead in maryland. what happened in the courtroom today, catherine. >> late today the a.p. picked up comments from the defense indicating that they really felt today's verdict was a significant win for them. we caught a glimpse of the defe

white house. 40 years from now our children are going to see a better criminal defense public defense system because of you. so our lawyers are changing the world. public defenders are changing the world everyday and you don't realize it because you are caught up in this wrath of injustice. part of it is supporting the public defenders to advocate with stories to try to get the resources that we need and to ultimately build a movement where the voices are too loud. you can't ignore the voices saying. remember what gideon said, this is a civil rights issue and we need to shame the country into stepping up to the plate. >> if anyone wants to learn more about gideon's promise i have borrow brochure. the website is gideon's promise.org. >> can you tell us about your personal story ? >> my personal story came in 1991. i was convicted of second degree murder of shooting into an occupied car and attempted murder. it all erupted from the area i was from. i was from the projects in san francisco off the -- i forgot the highway, but i was a very interesting person of character from that

-defense. that was such a focal point in the case, not only for the defense, also for the prosecution. they had the burden to prove beyond a reasonable doubt there was not self-defense. >> lisa, what do you think? >> i think there's no question that george zimmerman shot trayvon martin intention ally. he according to his own statements pulled out the gun and shot the gun intentionally. it's so disturbing to hear a juror speak after the fact that perhaps she should have held out when she had every opportunity in the jury room to voice how she felt and stand her ground and ultimately she chose not to. >> she's chose not to. mash, go ahead. when you heard this woman explain her rational, what did you think? >> the parties that i'm extracting from it i want to compliment about. trials are not moral try b-- tribunals in the united states. it happens every day in american jurisprudence. people may be everything from child molesters to murderers and robbers and everything in between but you have to apply the fact, you have to apply the evidence to the law. what she's saying is although moral

former c.i.a. officer who is now a senior fellow at the foundation for the defense of democracy. you have these mass rallies across egypt. do you think that the army got the mandate that they wanted when they called for this day of action? >> i suspect that the general would be satisfied with almost any demonstration that came out on his behalf. i think it is clear that they want to crack down on the brotherhood. they need as much popular support as they can get for that and for good cause. i think that this represents still the majority of the population. the military is probably backed by a minority of the population. >> isn't this a risky strategy when the country seems so divided? >> and the generals view, it is is the only strategy they have. they're looking to keep them in a state of herman and contests. they are trying to intimidate the brotherhood. >> what do you make of these charges, that he conspired with hamas. i think they are trumped up. have known about this for quite some time. they could have used to disqualify him from running from the presidency. a really means for
